Stress, Strain, and Structural Dynamics is a comprehensive and definitive reference to statics and dynamics of solids and structures, including mechanics of materials, structural mechanics, elasticity, rigid-body dynamics, vibrations, structural dynamics, and structural controls. This text integrates the development of fundamental theories, formulas and mathematical models with user-friendly interactive computer programs, written in the powerful and popular MATLAB. This unique merger of technical referencing and interactive computing allows instant solution of a variety of engineering problems, and in-depth exploration of the physics of deformation, stress and motion by analysis, simulation, graphics, and animation.
This book is ideal for both professionals and students dealing with aerospace, mechanical, and civil engineering, as well as naval architecture, biomechanics, robotics, and mechtronics. For engineers and specialists, the book is a valuable resource and handy design tool in research and development. For engineering students at both undergraduate and graduate levels, the book serves as a useful study guide and powerful learning aid in many courses. And for instructors, the book offers an easy and efficient approach to curriculum development and teaching innovation.
* Combines knowledge of solid mechanics--including
both statics and dynamics, with relevant
mathematical physics and offers a viable solution
* Will help the reader better integrate and
understand the physical principles of classical
mechanics, the applied mathematics of solid
mechanics, and computer methods.
* The Matlab programs will allow professional
engineers to develop a wider range of complex
engineering analytical problems, using closed-
solution methods to test against numerical and
other open-ended methods.
* Allows for solution of higher order problems at
earlier engineering level than traditional textbook

Industry Reviews

"Although there are many books covering these topics, this textbook must be commended for the seamless incorporation of fundamental principles, formulas, and solutions with interactive computer programs written in widely used engineering software MATLAB. This textbook is a helpful reference resource and a useful design tool because it closes the gap between the formulation of the basic theory and the analysis of practical problems. Therefore, it is a highly attractive as well as an exceedingly useful textbook not only to engineering students but also to engineering professionals working in the field of structural analysis." - Canadian Aeronautics and Space Journal, Sept. 2005
